The Best Vodkas Come from Idaho
In the Summertime, there are few things that hit the spot like an ice cold vodka cocktail. Idaho has an abundance of potato vodkas main ingredient thus paving the way for superb vodka from the gem state. Mix that with some great flavors like Idaho's own Huckleberry and you have yourself a stellar product. Here are some Idaho vodkas worth trying with descriptions from their websites with links. Happy almost summertime, enjoy.
On a side note: According to Eating Well, you should leave some vodka in a spray bottle in your laundry room or anywhere else you need a little bad odor assistance. Vodka's high alcohol content and antibacterial properties can neutralize a verity of smells and odors. When it dries unflavored vodka is clear and odorless so you can spray it before you wash your extra stinky items. I would use a vodka less amazing for laundry than these gems.
